Volunteering

We are so lucky to have a great team of friendly and capable volunteers doing great things in the Valley. Some people join our volunteer days to help make something better, some want to learn some new skills, or meet new people, others want to take advantage of the 100% reduction in membership fee’s that volunteering offers.

The current volunteering options are..

  • Green spaces litter picks – this generally happen on a weekend and led by at least one of the committee members. No formal events exist, but interest should be directed through the contact form and you will be contacted with the next event details. Equipment is provided by the Rangers office.
  • Waterways litter picks – this generally happen on a weekend and led by at least one of the committee members. No formal events exist, but interest should be directed through the contact form and you will be contacted with the next event details. Equipment is provided by the Rangers office.
  • Project progression – FoRV have a number of projects for the valley aimed around improving the opportunity for engagement and enjoyment of the valley. The current project is ‘50 ways to enjoy the valley‘ with the first part of the project being a mixture of starting an elf trail and improving a stretch of water for pooh sticks. (Things 19 & 41).
